Birds #7

Newly arrived/heard/seen: Common yellowthroat, red-eyed vireo, veery, Baltimore oriole, American redstart. My wife has seen yellow warblers in the neighborhood, and more redstarts and orioles, which I have only heard. Last night I heard the veery's "vurrr" a few times from a thicket when I went out to get something from my car. As I type, a male cardinal is at the feeder, eating sunflower seeds. Received an old bird guide from my grandmother over the weekend, from 1956. Interesting to see that both the cardinal and titmouse ranges do not extend into New England in that book, whereas now they are some of our most common feeder birds.
